The Scavenger2000™ is the most effective pollution control and water maintenance vessel available in the world today. The Scavenger Decontamination Vessels improve water quality by reducing and eliminating bacteria and viruses, raising D.O. (Dissolved Oxygen) levels, controlling algae growth, improving water clarity and eliminating odors. A multi-purpose vessel, the Scavenger2000™ not only decontaminates and re-oxygenates water, its unique design also allows to collect floating waste and debris, creating a safer and more attractive public waterway.
The key to the The Scavenger vessel is an advanced Patented Oxy-Plus™ water decontamination system that treats and revitalizes water by directly aerating the water with a combination of ozone and oxygen. When oxygen is injected into polluted water, the enrichment contributes directly to reducing contaminants suspended in the water. With the addition of ozone to the aeration process a very powerful yet environmentally SAFE disinfection occurs in the body of water being treated by the Scavenger vessel.
Ozone has been applied with great success in municipal sewer treatment facilities worldwide because of its ability to disinfect water without leaving harmful by-products left by chlorine. In fact, ozone has been found to be more than 100 times more powerful than chlorine in destroying E.coli bacteria.
As water enters through the bow of the vessel, the Oxy-Plus™ system generates ozone and oxygen and injects it into the water. The ozones’s life expectancy varies between a few seconds to a few minutes. The ozone then converts into oxygen. This process supports Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), breaks down substances so they become digestible to bacteria, and supports the aerobic oxidation of toxic nitrogen compounds. By altering the surface charge, ozone enables suspended particles to coagulate, therefore improving water clarity. In addition ozone effectively oxidizes some pesticides and some algae, eliminates odor and polluting chemicals. Lastly, it improves the dissolved oxygen (D.O.) content of the water which has a rejuvenating effect.
Nova Southeastern University’s Oceanographic Center says, “The Scavenger2000™’s Oxy-Plus™ technology can significantly improve water quality.” A single pass through the vessels system can reduce up 98% of bacteria and coliform present in the water, and algae counts by half.
The Scavenger Vessel simultaneously picks up floatable trash, oxidizes bacteria ie: (Fecal Coliform) and injects life-supporting oxygen and cleansing ozone into the water. The Scavenger vessel has the capacity to decontaminate at a rate of 20,000 gallons per MINUTE and can inject up to 150,000 liters of oxygen per HOUR up to a depth of 30 feet.
